, jon corzine running for it in 2000. jon corzine barely ee k'd out the victory. they were getting so much bad publicity they lost a point in the polls. "the new york times" endorsed the republican in that race. i can't remember the last time that happened. i want to ask you about the overall state of play now. i'm looking at where the senate battlegrounds are right now. missouri, the democrats managed to take that off the board. claire mccaskill is fine. we're talking about north dakota and arizona, an easer republican win and indiana, if lugar was there and olympia snow. whatever happens on election day the democrat vs won "the cycle" to date in a decisive way. is that a farieding on it? >> sure n-a way they have. in february we said republicans probably had a 60% to 65% of chance of getting the four seats they need to get the majority. that percentage now is below 40. they have, you know -- they need a perfect election night, which they're unlikely to get, to win the majority. so yeah, sure, democrats have won the cycle. >> jennifer, that maine race is really interesting. king is a
. thank you for coming in. president obama was on "the daily show" last night and jon stewart as he often does asked both tough and funny questions. he asked him to make his case for four more years. here's what the president case. >> i have a strong case on both ends. four years ago i said i would end the war in iraq. we did. i said i would pass health care reforms to make sure people don't go bankrupt when they get sick. we have. said we would refocus our attention on al qaeda. we have. >> there he is making his case. you heard what karen and ron had to say. what do you think will make a difference in the closing 18 days? >> campaigns when we look back are all about moments that are unscripted and you can't pred t predict. i found the most significant thing on debate to be exchange on pay equity. romney's gains out of the first debate among women, suburban women, swing voters. i think he revealed a problem there which is he has a different point of view. there's a difference between how a suburban woman thinks about pay equity and women's issues and how governor romney does off his tal

president obama sat down with jon stewart on "the daily show" where he faced questions about the administration's handling of the attack in libya and the communication problem that followed. >> we weren't confused about the fact that four americans had been killed. >> sure. >> i wasn't confused about the fact that we needed to ramp up diplomatic security around the world right after it happened. i wasn't confused about the fact that we had to investigate exactly what happened so it getted fixed, and i want confused about the fact that we're going to hunt down whoever did it and bring them to justice. >> i would say you would even admit it was not the optimal response at least to the american people as far as us all being on the same page. >> well, here's what i'll say. >> yeah. >> if four americans get killed, it's not optimal. >> right. >> and we're going to fix it. >> all of it. >> all of it. >> ed rendell, there are certainly some who are reacting to the use of the word "optimal" in this case. what's your take? >> jon stewart said it first in that exchange. and i think wha
. thursday night, jon stewart tried to get at that during an interview with the president. >> state was on a different page than you or that you had susan rice five days after saying show this video and could have been a part of that, then other people -- >> the truth is, information comes in. >> mm-hmm. >> folks put it out throughout the process people say it's incomplete. >> is part of the investigation helping the communication between these divisions, not just what happened in benghazi, but what happened within? i would say even you would admit it was not the optimal response, at least to the american people as far as us all being on the same page. >> here's what i'll say. >> yep. >> if four americans get killed, it's not optimal. we are going fix it. all of it. and what happens during the course of the presidency is that the government is a big operation. at any given time, something screws up and you make sure that you find out what is broken and you fix it. >> information coming out about the attacks is no less confusing now. several reports seem to correspond ob rate thorly
at every turn, republicans like ohio secretary of state jon husted have tried to kill it off. 30% of the ohio vote was cast before election day. this time around, it could be as high as 40%. the romney campaign has 36 field offices in the state of ohio. represented by the red dots on this map. the obama campaign has 96 field offices in ohio, the blue dots on the map. if the obama campaign has a better ground game, it can take full advantage of early votes and that's what they are trying to do. there's another potential in ohio. 500,000 voters have been taken off the rolls since 2008. a leading voting rights group has filed a request to make sure that the process was fully legal. joining me tonight and now is ohio state senator nina turner who has been on the forefront fighting this fight all along. you can see the folks behind her are ready to stay out and make sure they get voting squared away early. why are you going through this and how important is it? >> thanks for being with us, ed. it's vitally important that despite the dirty tricks going on in the state of ohio that folk
, jon huntsman, was a candidate against him and debated against him. did you have a problem, which romney is going to show snup. >> that's what people are asking, is the conservative romney or moderate romney when he ran against senator kennedy or a whole different version of romney? but i will say, the only way he's going to knock president obama off message is if he does show a side of himself that none of us have ever seen and that's the only way he's going to hit it out of the ballpark, is if he shows us who he really is: >> you have prepped hillary clinton four years ago. if you were prepping the president tonight, what would you tell him? >> i would say take advantage of this format. it's 90 minutes. it's on substance. he has a very big advantage over romney in that he has policies and proposals. he knows where his policies are. they haven't shifted dramatically. he also understands mitt romney's policies and the lack of definition. so he has a lot of opportunity to define mitt romney because mitt romney has been so vague. so i would say keep the debate on substance. take it
casting their ballots as well. it's a major blow to secretary of state jon usted who has a record of being a partisan republican. he's been trying to limit early voting all here and it's great knew for the 93,000 voters who cast their ballots in the days leading up to the election in 2008. this is the latest in a string of voting right victories that we've seen over the last few weeks. it's a win for the president. it's a win for democracy. it's a win for equality and it's a win for voting rights everywhere. the fight is working and we can't stop now. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. approved!

're back with the relentless right-wing push to suppress your vote. we told you about jon husted ohio's republican secretary of state who's appealing a ruling that reinstated early voting in the last three days before the election. in 2008 93,000 ohioans voted in the final three days. that's why president obama sued husted for cutting off early voting, and he won, but the secretary of state refuses to go away. let's be clear what's going on here. we have a guy in charge of elections doing everything he can to make it harder for people to vote. it seems crazy, right? so who is this man? joining me now from ohio is ohio state representative kathleen clyde, and joe madison, nationally syndicated radio host of "mornings with madison." thank you both for joining me tonight. >>> representative let's go to you first. what can you tell us about this man? >> well today's decision shows us he really will stop at nothing to fight voters having access to the polls, and having their votes counted. appealing this decision the united states supreme court to have voting on the th
